Total Productive Maintenance

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is the lean tool concerned with maximising the efficiency of Production Machinery. It’s more than just a maintenance programme or machine improvement activity. It’s a means for dramatically improving reliability by building the capabilities of people, processes, facilities and equipment.

TPM focuses on getting managers, maintenance personnel and equipment users all working together to identifying and eliminating waste or loss associated with production equipment. By giving ownership and responsibility of equipment and processes to the right employees, equipment breakdowns and stoppages can be reduced. TPM provides a systematic proactive approach to setting standards and visual guides for preventing breakdowns and making your equipment run smoothly.

TPM is integral to any Lean Production system, and is part of the foundation of operational stability. This one day Lean Training course utilises practical examples to demonstrate the improvements that the successful implementation of a TPM programme can make to a business. This course is ideally suited to personnel from Production, Maintenance, Engineering and Quality.

BTA can incoporate a post course assignment approach following this training to facilitate, coach and support the team in the application of TPM.
